Hello and where are the demos?

Thanks Dalibor,  Mario.

I'm not specifically interested in improving SwingSet2 above all else  -
its just that I had a couple of easy fixes to hand.  Given that the
SwingSet2 code is not in the repos I'll look at another couple of bugs  I
wanted to see fixed.    One is a trivial bug in  the jvmti HeapTracker demo
(sunbug 6927816)  that only shows up when using the J9 JVM. The other
(sunbug 7002627)  is in AWT code.

I think  I  turn up on the awt-dev mailing list to discuss 7002627  and
the serviceability-dev mailing list for  HeapTracker and 6927816.   Is that

Hi Steve,

The OpenJDK demos are in the jdk repository - so just cd to
jdk/src/share/demo for the
good stuff. I can't find SwingSet2 in there, so I don't think it was
released as
part of OpenJDK - I believe the demo contained a bunch of third party
images, though
the exact minutiae of that happened before I joined Sun.

Meanwhile, the next generation of open source Swing demos can be found at
https://swingset3.dev.java.net/ - though that doesn't necessarily make
sense as
something to hack on to get a feel for OpenJDK, as it's not a part of it.

Instead, if you want to have a go at improving the Swing-ish demos, please
take a
look at the jfc subdirectory of the demo directory for the examples that
are in
